Internships

Language Course & Internship programmes
The internship always takes place after the language course, as it prepares the student to work in a local company. For students to be able to use their own skills, they must have reached the necessary language level enabling them to meet the demands of the internship. This criterion is essential to the smooth running and success of the programme.
Divided into two stages, this programme includes: a language course and an unpaid internship in a company.
 
First stage: language course
You will start with an intensive language course which will enable you to meet the demands of the internship. During the first stage of the programme, you will also be given help to take the necessary steps enabling you to work as an unpaid intern in a company after the language course.

  • a personalised analysis to identify your skills and interests
  • writing of CV’s and cover letters
  • interviews with potential employers on-site

This way, you will be given a global and objective understanding of the local professional sector and determine the goals you expect to accomplish.
 
Second stage: unpaid internship in a company
You will then be working in a company as an unpaid intern. By meeting various professionals and completing a number of tasks, you will quickly familiarise yourself with the chosen professional sector.  Little by little, you will gain more and more responsibilities and take on specific projects. To ensure the success of this programme, it is essential that the intern not only communicates easily in the language spoken at work, but is also motivated and always available.
 
Professional sectors 
The professional sectors available include all those involving communications (services, marketing, sales, hospitality, tourism, information technology, new technologies, law, social, etc.). There are many opportunities on offer so do not restrict yourself to one single sector but consider this programme as a whole: the perfect experience to gain good language skills and use them while working at a foreign company.
 
Two complementary activities
This programme is a real opportunity for those who wish to become fluent in a foreign language. Total immersion in two complementary activities, a formal language training course and a practical internship, are real assets for your future.
